While tourists ride the buses into Denali National Park, Alaskans are driving, cycling, hiking and canoeing the other Denali — The Denali Highway, an unpaved road to the wilderness leading from Paxson through the Alaska Range to Cantwell. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll learn about this spectacular alpine route, the incredible outdoor opportunities, and the archeology of the place. Ancient people left evidence of the some of the earliest human travel in the Americas.
Can you imagine biking around the world? On the next Outdoor Explorer, hear from two French cyclists – a CPA and a postal worker – who doing just that. We’ll also hear about cycle-touring in Alaska, too, and the best routes and tips for your own trip.

The air you breathe keeps you alive, and it should always be pure and healthy, but for outdoor athletes, air quality means much more, whether you’re an elite runner or if you are just huffing and puffing up a hill on your bicycle. On today’s show, we’re going to learn about both parts of this equation: the quality of our air in Anchorage and around Alaska, and how our bodies handle the air, including how our lungs respond to pollution.
